In Week 8, 10/26 and 10/28, we will consider questions of God and suffering.  Why is there evil in the world, and how do we cope with it?  This week engages principally with matters of theology.

For 10/26, Monday, please read ONE of the following (Mackie or Swinburne).  You may choose whichever you prefer.

Mackie, Evil and Omnipotence

Swinburne, Why God Allows Evil

For 10/28, Wednesday, please read BOTH of the following.
